Here in LN Mallorca are a bit lucky that we just started with our work after the liquidity issue because we're able to promote FairCoin in a totally different way. We're not promising any exchange back to fiat as we want to create an independent economic system and keep the coins circulating locally.

We'll tell them that they should just accept a very small amount (like 50 or 100 FAIR) per month in the beginning so it wouldn't harm a lot economically. By being so clear, the place of acceptance goes in with totally different expectations. (I think that strategy was already proposed several times by others, which we think is a good one). Anyway, what we promise is that we help to find supplies, products, services or individuals they may pay in FAIR. But the place of acceptance should be ideally also part of the story by finding places themselves. If they have FairCoins not yet to use, they can also try selling them to customers themselves and promote FairCoin actively as well. This way we can decentralize the physical places of exchange and let them also be more independent from Local Nodes.

If you have for example 5, 10 or 20 places in a city where you can spend FairCoin, a local node can propose to increase the limits of each place, as the use value is in this region increased by the network.
